These are excellent, very well balanced, and extremely easy to make. I doubled the recipe and added a 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper. Boy, did these turn out well. I ended up toasting them for more than five minutes in the oven, let them cool, chopped them and then caramelized them. Exactly what I was looking for as a topper for a sweet potato cheesecake.
Although these were easy to make I also was not crazy about them. Not sweet enough, I think I'll try them one more time but double all the ingredients except the pecans. Also instead of sprinkling the sugar over the nuts I will just add the pecans to the sugar mixture so they get coated good. Not sure one really has to bake them as this seems to melt the sugar off the nuts.
I tagged these in the Fav's of 2009 game. I doubled and used walnuts and almonds, Earth Balance (dairy allergy). Easy to make, however, I wasn't wild about them. Not sweet enough. I could only taste the nutmeg. They weren't bad, just not something I would make again.
(*humming a happy little French tune here*---'la Vie en Rose") 'cause I'm in love with these delicacies! I needed some candied pecans to go into my famous salad (okay, not famous but it oughta be:):), Ultimate Fabulous Baby Greens and Strawberry Salad!. These are so good they may be all eaten up before I serve the salad tonight...instead of cinnamon and nutmeg, I used a smidge of cayenne. Sweet 'n' hot---yes!
I loved this recipe. Very easy and just sweet enough. As the name says Perfectly Candied Pecans.
Oh, I thought these were terrific! I loved the touch of maple, and the salt is just enough to make a perfect sweet/salty combo. I made a smallish batch with walnuts to top Pear & Walnut Salad With Balsamic Vinaigrette, and as such made a few changes in prep. Instead of boiling the butter/syrup in a pan I put it in a small pyrex bowl and put the bowl in the oven while the oven preheated. Once it was done preheating the butter and syrup had melted together and I was able to proceed from there as written. Thanks so much for a real keeper! Made for Veg*n Swap #20.
These are absolutely declicious and oh, so easy to make! We enjoyd them so much they are going into my Christmas baskets for my neighbors (once I make another batch or two!!). Thank you for a terific keeper recipe. *Made for Aussie Tag Nov 2009*
Absolutely decadent! These SHOULD be very difficult to make, well at least if you think the most delicious things take the longest! Seriously, though, this is so simple, yet so delicious. These are a no-brainer of a fantastic gift, jarred, or bagged, but I'm thinking they would be so good in place of plain nuts in so many things! I doubled the recipe and used both pecans and walnuts - and I'm really glad I did! Thanks, JB - what an awesome recipe! Made for Veg'n Swap 11.
